Mathmos Neo colour combination question (Violet/ Pink)

Started this discussion. Last reply by Lava_Head_UK Jun 3. 6 Replies

It has taken me a while to warm to the Neo, but am now toying with the idea of getting one in this colour combo, but am a bit confused as to how it actually looks in person. Some photographs online…Continue

"Yes, I think you’re right. It’s a lovely effect. I’ve also got the mathmos tuba, but I’m looking to sell that too. Your solar lamp is beautiful though x x x"

"Think yours is the ‘Lunar’ rather than the ‘Solar’ version - they had a more limited colour phasing and I think a sort of mesh around the luminaire which created a patterned effect to the light."

"In the early 00s I got a Telstar in blue/blue in which the wax was more purpley-pink in hue, I ended up sending it back and getting it changed, which in hindsight I regret - the 'true blue' they sent as a replacement is rather dark and…"

"No not on the astrobaby or telstar either.  Do you remember when the blue blue wasnt even proper blue? Ive lost count how many variants of the blue blue ive got.  My first 1996 astro blue blue was more blue pink My 1998 astro blue blue was…"

"Hmm, was it on the Astrobaby/ Telstar at that point? Must have been a pretty brief absence if indeed if was dropped from the whole line up."

"Brochure from 2013. Shows no astro in blue blue for the chrome version or the heritage version. I knew there was a break from it somewhere. "
Monday
Jezza replied to lampfancy's discussion New Mathmos Colour Combinations!
"Sorry you are right, my mistake, however, i do believe it was discontinued at some stage only to be reintroduced for the heritage range. Both yellow orange and blue blue were introduced together both reformulated for the heritage line. I think this…"

lampfancy replied to lampfancy's discussion New Mathmos Colour Combinations!
"I remember the mass product cull in the early 00s,  but the surviving colour options were violet/red, blue/green and blue/blue. (I still have a brochure from around this time)Violet/orange and eventually some other colours didn't re-appear…"

Jezza replied to lampfancy's discussion New Mathmos Colour Combinations!
"You are correct Elias, In 2002 there was a major cutback in production. The telstar, jet and lunar were discontinued and the astro bottle line was reduced to just 3 options. Violet red, violet orange and blue green.  Blue blue and yellow…"

Elias replied to lampfancy's discussion New Mathmos Colour Combinations!
"Not sure if i remember this wrong but i thought Blue/blue ony returned with the Heiretage copper lamps along with yellow/orange."
Monday
lampfancy replied to lampfancy's discussion New Mathmos Colour Combinations!
"Blue/ Blue was actually never dropped from the Astro line, so basically the colourway has been continuously available in some form since at least the 1990s, but is now 'new' apparently. So many possibilities - really feels like they just…"

"Hmmmmm Blue Blue again, nice colour but we have already had that colour & my Yellow Pink Neo bottle arrived with damage to the coating on the bottle & it’s slightly cloudy so it will be going straight back!! "
Monday
lampfancy replied to lampfancy's discussion New Mathmos Colour Combinations!
"Just when you thought they had finally done the decent thing and put that dreary colourway out to pasture...Seriously, they go out of their way to create suspense and this is what they come up with? 

Do they struggle so much to come up with colours…"

"BLUE/ BLUE yawn, wanna see Green & yellow "wax", or the pretty in pink combo, pink & orange, or expand the astro range to include blue & pink, yellow & red  but give us a Yellow Lava :-)"
